Enzyme Peels

Enzyme peels are a facial treatment that takes advantage of fruit enzymes, leaving your skin softer and smoother. At Smile-Chic, our estheticians can provide enzyme peels to help rejuvenate and brighten your skin from the effects of dead skin cells.

What are Enzyme Peels?

Unlike chemical peels containing glycolic and salicylic acids to exfoliate the skin, enzyme peels are made with fruit enzymes that digest dead skin cells. Enzyme peels are gentle enough on sensitive skin and help reveal a brighter, healthier complexion once the treatment is finished. What’s more, is that the ingredients for enzyme peels can easily be found in your kitchen!

Fruits such as pineapple, papaya, figs, and pomegranates are just a few examples of what can be found in enzyme peels. Because enzymes are naturally derived and active ingredients, they act fast in dissolving dead skin cells to reveal smoother, healthier skin underneath. Enzyme peels are considered a powerful but gentle option because of their massive benefits, including:

  • Great For All Skin Types: Their simple ingredients are known to be gentle on the skin. While considered excellent for all skin types, enzyme peels are especially good for sensitive skin.
  • Clears Clogged Pores: The enzymes work to digest dead skin and debris in clogged pores, unclogging and shrinking the pores for a minimal, smooth appearance.
  • Diminishes Fine Lines and Wrinkles: As the enzymes remove dead skin cells, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is reduced over time, especially with multiple treatment sessions.
  • Fades Age Spots and Redness: Age spots and redness caused by sun-damaged dry skin can be soothed by enzyme peels, diminishing them over time.
  • Can Treat Acne Scars: Mild signs of acne scars affected by inflammation and bacteria can also be treated similarly to fine lines and wrinkles, slowly reducing their appearance over time for a smooth, renewed glow.

Enzyme peels can be combined with other skin services, including facials, microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, and facial waxing, to help patients gain the most out of their benefits. Enzyme peels can provide a fantastic finish to any facial treatment, including the Hydrafacial and Sensitive Skin facials. Compared to chemical peel counterparts, enzyme peels are unique in skincare that any of our expert estheticians will approve.

Medical spas, also known as medspa, medi-spas, and med spa, blend the best of two worlds — a relaxing spa experience with the procedures and expertise found at a doctor’s office. A doctor oversees the medical spa and is in charge of procedures that fall under the medical realm.

Meet our team at Smile-Chic, the premier med spa! We’ll be happy to show you what makes us an excellent choice for all of your treatment needs.

Medical esthetic treatments go far beyond the mud baths, fruit peels, and therapeutic massages found at most day spas. Treatments at many medical spas and health clinic offices are more intense and offer more noticeable results.

Esthetic medicine includes all procedures in esthetics, except surgical procedures requiring an operating table and general anesthesia. Medical grade esthetic procedures include dermal fillers, permanent hair reduction, acne treatments, chemical peels, hydrafacials and many more.

To make an appointment at Smile-Chic, please use our online scheduling system or contact us directly by calling 361-356-1116.

We also recommend that you schedule future appointments in advance to ensure your preferred time is available, as nights and Saturdays are the most requested times.

All booked appointments will be confirmed by our staff via a telephone call or text reminder or email a day or two before your appointment. Please provide us with a valid email address. Scheduling an appointment is your acceptance of these policies.

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to prepare for your treatment. As we are a medical spa, we require new patients to fill out a brief medical history information and consent form.

If you are scheduled for dermal fillers, laser treatments or special peels we recommend you arriving 15 minutes prior to your appointment time so that we can properly prepare you skin for the treatment.

If you have any additional questions or special need, call Smile-Chic, a Corpus Christi Med Spa at (361) 356-1116 and our scheduling consultants can assist you.

Our scheduling is designed to permit the correct amount of time to complete your service. A late arrival will deprive you of precious treatment time. In fairness to others, your treatment must end on time so the next patient’s session can begin on time.

If you are not able to be on time we will do our best to complete as much of your treatment as possible.

With some treatments, it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment.
